A comfortable apartment in a beautiful Brownstone building in the Back Bay Area. The host was quick to respond to queries and were able to offer this apartment as an alternative when our first choice was already booked. I would definitely stay here again as it was such a good location to explore Boston.
Our stay in Boston Back Bay was lovely. The area is beautiful and also central. The apartment was spacious, modern, clean and highly equipped. Would highly recommend.
Kitty was very helpful with my reservation. There was no check-in, just an email with the lobby door and room code (very convenient). The apartment was clean, comfortable and close to the Freedom Trail, Newbury Street (shopping and restaurants). Thankfully one of the guests provide elevator instructions, otherwise 6 flights of stairs to climb.
For a solo traveller or couple the size of the offering was adequate. Location is great as its close to Charles St and not too far a walk to Newbury and Boyston.
I did not see an elevator for this property. Not an issue for me, but something to consider as this unit is on the fifth floor. Best to confirm with the landlord if one is there if you need it. Certainly worth the price paid. It was generally clean. Clean fresh linens and towels were provided. Could've used a bit more attention to vacuuming. All in all good value. Thank you.
Nice apartment in a really nice area of Boston. Cheers bar and Boston Common just opposite. Check in was very smooth, information was provided in a timely fashion and the entry codes worked fine. Lift not immediately obvious and pretty old but a God send if you are on the upper floors with luggage.
Great location! Apartment was good size, nicely furnished. Some minor defects (sliding door that did not function properly, broken cabinet door), and perhaps could have been a little bit cleaner, but overall was nice. This apartment definitely served our needs very well as we had our 18 month old with us so it was nice to have a full kitchen, bath and separate bedroom. Unfortunately he got sick and we had to leave a day early! But this apartment was a good fit during our stay.
Below are the Pros and Cons for the items that "we" found important.
- The apartment has a wonderful location.
- Fully furnished with all required items in the kitchen and plenty of towels and linens to last for several days.
- Cable TV with many channels. Didn't use it too much, but was nice to sit down at the end of the day and relax with options on TV.
- Elevator in the building helped to get our luggage in and out.
- We have stayed here in August. The living room has Air Conditioning that worked well to keep the Living Room cool. In the bedroom there is no AC and the ceiling fan is located so high that we could not really feel any airflow even at full speed. Opening the windows helped a little, but it was still somewhat uncomfortable.
